More Photoshop


More working with Katrin Eismann's books today--this time I worked on Restoration and Retouching with an old photo my sister bought for me a couple of years ago that was scratched and faded. For a first attempt using new techniques, I feel pretty good about this. On the left is the original; the middle is color-corrected to improve contrast and remove color cast; the right has the scratches removed. Clicking on the photo will make it larger so you can see the changes more clearly.

TIRED today--the eighth grader went on his class trip to Sacramento, so I was up at 3 a.m. with him--took him up to the school at 4 a.m. and got back in bed at 4:30--up again at 6:30 to get other kids off to school. I have to pick him up at the school at 11:45 tonight--yawn. Good thing I've got something to look forward to tomorrow! Piano lessons--yay! Today was the first day I've missed my morning pages in three weeks...

wow - that's pretty amazing...and the kind of thing we used to pay tons of money to get done years ago (I know - I did it with a picture or two of my parents when they were young)(which qualifies for a very old photo)

That looks like good work. I've fixed a few of the many many family photos in my collection. It gets really hard with the more damaged ones.

Thanks for visiting the SMB!
